Genitourinary Tract

  • Alf Staudach

Abstract

Evaluation of the fetal genitourinary tract is of major importance due to the prevalence of anomalies in that area. In our study population, genitourinary malformations were very common and second only to central nervous system defects. The overall incidence of urinary tract malformations found in pediatric autopsies ranges between 5% and 7.8% (Zschock et al. 1968; Porter 1978).
